Gravel was a supporter of same-sex “marriage” and abortion rights, causing scandal to the Catholic Church, and after serving one term in elected office was forced to retire from politics. He subsequently sued LifeSiteNews for $500,000 in damages, claiming his reputation was maligned after the online news agency described his views as “pro-abortion” whereas he identified himself as ...

Non-shocking story about shocking health regulation violations

The Daily Caller highlights a story from Ohio about an abortion facility that has been fined $25,000 for "shocking health and sanitation violations." These stories are no longer all that shocking because freestanding abortion facilities often slum it in terms of adhering to medical regulations. As the Kermit Gosnell story illustrates, state regulators often ignore abortion mill violations. Here's a partial list of violations: The Bedford Heights Planned Parenthood was notified of the fine in a ... (Continue reading)

Disappearing Down Syndrome

Wesley Smith writes about how there are fewer people with Down Syndrome (and dwarfism) because about 90% of children diagnosed in utero with Down are aborted, and many parents who do not abort are viewed with contempt for bringing children into the world with such disabilities. We've written before about the dangers of expanding genetic screening when there is no treatment or cure for babies diagnosed with various genetic flaws. And editorial we wrote 12 years ...

CBC posted a story on the matter, reporting “The CCBR distributed as many as 50,000 postcards to Hamilton ... (Continue reading)

Abortion is not just a religious issue: libertarian

Julie Borowski has a YouTube video (about two minutes) entitled "Abortion isn't just a religious issue." Borowski says "Don't hurt innocent people" is a principle non-religious people can hold and is, indeed, a libertarian principle. That the preborn child is a human being is not a matter of religious dogma, but scientific fact. Opposing abortion expands liberty by protecting the preborn child from deadly force.
